Travellin’ Travellin’ Travellin’ (Spendin’ Spendin’ Spendin’)

Sometimes we leave town, and it costs a lot of money. Other times we leave town, and it costs less money. But it almost always costs money. Here are the places I have gone and am going, and what it cost or will cost me to get there (what I spend  when there is a different matter. I only go visit friends or family, really, so it ranges from zero dolllars to all of the dollars at my disposal, usually).
